Abstract:

The Army Command and Control Evaluation System ACCES was developed as a performance measurement tool for division and corps command and control. To date, ACCES has been applied to one corps and six division exercises. This report reviews the data across all division applications of ACCES and points out patterns and trends that may be significant to the whole Army. It also assesses the ACCES measures themselves, so that improvements can be made in future applications. ACCES shows great promise for becoming highly useful, not only as a measurement tool for command and control training, but also as a means of evaluating physical and operational changes in command post environment. When the data base of ACCES applications has grown somewhat, it will useful for further development of lessons learned from division and corps training exercises. Keywords Command and control systems, Adaptive control cycle, Command and control training, Command group training, Command post performance, Performance measurement.
